National Student Association of Medical Research (NSAMR) is a non-profit, non-governmental and non-partisan student-led organisation representing an association of student medical research societies nationally. NSAMR currently serves 25 medical research societies at universities across the UK including University College London, University of Aberdeen and Queen’s University Belfast. Our overarching aim is to promote and allow engagement in research for medical students by utilising a variety of methods.
One such method being the provision of research and audit opportunities for medical students across the UK. The taster month programme which is run by our Research team allows medical students who have never had experience in laboratory-based research to spend days visiting facilities which are carrying out research in an area of potential personal interest.
What’s more, NSAMR Outreach works to engage with and support aspiring medics based at schools across across the country through the NSAMR Buddy Scheme.
The buddy scheme pairs up college or school students with an interest in medicine, with local medical students, and specifically prioritises students from schools which produce less medics.
NSAMR is registered with the Charity Commission with charity number 1169158.
